Kissing Lesotho MTB Stage Race
Sat 20 Aug - Sun 21 Aug 2022 @ Joel, Free State

Trail Hunter Events

Oranje Guest Farm is a working farm amongst the beautiful mountains of the Eastern Free State in South Africa, located between Fouriesburg and Clarens, near the border of Lesotho.

Imagine a setting for a break-away with friends and family in a valley created by the Maluti Mountains on the one side and the red mountains on the other side.

Imagine sandstone cliffs colored by nature in hues of tan, yellow, brown, and black, with the late afternoon sun adding that spectacular orange glow on the majestic sandstone rock cliffs.

Imagine cattle, sheep and horses grazing peacefully in the abundant valley.

This is Oranje Guest Farm, situated 20 km from Clarens and 14km from Fouriesburg on the R711, the most picturesque route in South Africa
